have a PNY (Attache) Pen Drive (2GB) containing a large file that has now been corrupted and cannot be deleted. I need to delete this file (it is over 1 Gb in size) and I am prepared to format the Pen Drive if necessary. But if this is the best solution how do I do it?

If you can see the drive in Explorer, Just right click on it and click format.

start, run, type 'cmd', enter, then use console comand:

format x : /fs:ntfs, where x is the letter of the drive that you want to format, and /fs it's the type of file system.
